If you go through any list with a fine tooth comb there's some real weak points.

Cordy, Duryea, Richards, Garcia, JUH, Schache, Hannan, R Smith, JJ arguably wouldn't get a game in our team at the moment.

Our list isn't the best in the league but would have to be top-4

Schache has some serious Kingsley vibes about him this week. Making me nervous

Best wishes.
Many neutral fans want the Dees to win the flag.
Goodwin obviously worked hard in the off season to rejig the team structure.
Some of his tactics are genius insofar as installing Fritsch as a key positional forward, Neal-Bullen at times positioned on the arc boundary line, stretching defences.
Dogs have benefited from a soft draw, already played the Roos twice, outplayed by the Swans.

A completely irrelevant point to the subject at hand, but I thought Duryea was terrible at Hawthorn but he's actually looked good in the dogs games I've seen this year. Genuine surprise to me.

Smith schache Edwards and Garcia don't get a game for the dogs either lol and considering how sh*t our forward lines been I bet JUH gets a game for us.

Anyway I'd rank us about 4-6th for best 22

I remember I was bartending in a northern town in Canada in the middle of the day. Watched the whole game on my phone standing behind the DJ booth.

Bar tending, ahhhhh, probably the worst job I've ever done in my life. I never realised how much I despise drunk people at 4am sober.

Was at a mates place off my tits. The club had a genuine stench of death about it at the time. So when we saw we were up by about 40 points at three-quarter time we drunk drove to the local (didn’t have Fox at the time) and watched the Bulldogs pile on the goals to go from being excited about winning to feeling genuinely sick by the final siren. Don’t ever change Melbourne.

I was never sober mate 🤣 part of the reason I'm not a bartender anymore. Should absolutely legalize drinking when you are bartender
wish my boss had gone for that. I used to take some goey where I could but having a snort in the toilets when you're working is wayyyy too risky. Far less to lose when you're only a patron.

Only good thing that came of my bartending experience was when I picked up a girl id been trying to bang since high school one night.

Yup we went from dominating to literally clinging on for dear life. If we'd let that slip we probably don't win for the season.

That’s good enough. You don’t have to have the very best list to win, but you have to have a pretty good one with good performers across all lines. And you have to have good coaching that maximises your assets. And a bit of luck

I remember Jack Watts saved the day that game
